APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics at Brown University

Jan 20 – Jan 22, 2023

The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors.

All APS CUWiP attendees are required to be fully vaccinated. Attendees will also be required to submit proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test prior to the conference.

See The APS COVID Guidelines for more information.

The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.

The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.

CUWiP Conferences will be held in 14 locations including Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

CUWiP has become incredibly popular. In order to maximize the number of CUWiP participants we can accommodate, we will allocate participants to sites based on travel logistics and site capacity. We will aim to follow the distributions outlined below, but may have to make adjustments. Please do not purchase travel or plan to be at a specific site until you receive an email confirming you have been accepted to a specific CUWiP site.
